Steven R. Rochlin: Have the Case Logic medium camera holder (with lens storage on each size) and it's great. The solid/plastic bottom is very stable and useful. Very well built case of course. Just ordered the above backpack for travelling to take to events / locations. Not the cheapest backpack, yet Case Logic has always done right with quality and durability.

Yes, evidentely you need a new bag. So I do. Hope its not too tipsy.

Well. I guess all that people are not hiking for their weddings, at least.

Artak Hambarian: Well the 24 megapixels is the yesterdays story. Give us more please... especially at that price...

Yes, you are right - I mean fixed and fixed focal length aka non-zoom. I have handled it in a shop, it feels nice, but not convenient for me. As I have written in my other comment here, at least a 24-35 f/2.8 or better 20-40 f/2.8 or even f/4 would make this camera much, much more desirable and usable as a second, wide angle body helping not to change the lens so much.

Crispsting: I think 24 msg is more than enough and why would you need a zoom with the digital zoom in the camera from 28 mm to 50mm? Artak why would you want a f2,8 lens when this is a f1.7? I am ordering mine today and replacing my Fujifilm X100T.

Digital zoom is just cropping. That is why the raw dng is not affected by the digital zoom, which by itself is meaningless, except for it hints another composition. Well I wish the f/1.7 zoom was smaller. Look at the size of the Sigma f/1.8 zoom, so far the only one with that aperture. Then the idea of a relatively small camera disappears!

Artak Hambarian: ...and also please at least a modest zoom like 20 - 40 mm f/2.8. In that case I would pay even $6k. This would help me not to change my lenses on the dslr so frequently. If you like this idea, give me a discount, Leica!

I would even agree to 24-35mm f/2.8 zoom. In other words that camera should cover a good bit of wide angle and be used instead of changing the lens on the dslr. At the same time be much more usable as an independent camera too.

He he. The argument that you bring people were bringing in the time being, when the top cameras delivered 12mp and Nikon was stuck at 6mp. There were always people saying "enough megapixels"! Or saying I have a MEGAPIXEL camera! Are you saying that this particular number, the 24mp is the last one? Don't you also stitch panoramas?

Mr. Zuckerberg, don't you have another billion to buy this company out?

After all this makes an underwater selfie so easy! It will sell like hot cakes!

Well, if GoPro conquered the ground and then the air via e.g. copters, or paragliding extremists, why not to conquer the ocean depths, or at least some beautiful rivers or ponds? 8m is fine then.

supeyugin1: The smartphones are moving to the right direction I think, with such phones like Galaxy Note 4, S6, K zoom, LG G4, HTC One M9, and CM1.
CM1 seems to be a good phone, but some things I don't like:
1. 28mm equivalent lens is too wide.
2. non-removable battery
3. no OIS
4. no Xenon flash
5. 1" sensor is too big for a phone.
Ideally I'd like to have a phone as follows:
1. 1/1.7" - 2/3" sensor size
2. 30-35mm fixed focal f/2.0 or faster lens, or 24-1XX zoom similar to the ones on Canon S120 or Fuji XQ2.
3. Xenon flash
4. OIS
5. removable battery.

I currently own Samsung Galaxy K zoom and I'm very pleased with it, the quality of the photos is much better than my previous phone Galaxy Note 3, which was not bad as well, but the sensor size is a bit small at 1/2.3", and the zoom is bit too long (24-240mm). All other features are present on this phone. I hope that the next iteration will reach my expectations.

Totally agree!

Igor Adamovic: The next step is implementation of mobile functionality in a full frame dslr camera. I already see myself speaking on Canon 5d with 70-200mm f2.8 :D

Well, it will happen - how big is cell phone chip-set not to fit in? What about a few years later? It will be very convenient to have a map assist on the same screen, be able to instantly share, and not just to Facebook...

Artak Hambarian: Close, but not yet there. Adding even a very limited optical zoom would be welcome. A bit of additional size is OK IMHO.

Lars, that is fine - the alternative is to carry both cell phone and the camera. Also I am talking about a limited zoom, e.g. 24-50mm equivalent. After all how big is the Sony rx100 mk3 with 24-70?

Is it supposed to be HD, 4K?

If you click on the Youtube icon on the right bottom corner, it takes you there, where the 4k version is available too.
